As I am writing this post I sit hear eating a piece of this slice. Scott loves Anzac's of any variety and in any form, chewy, crunch he will eat it! This slice is soooo easy and quick to make and you can have it chewy or crunchy, it just depends on the cooking time, less for chewy, more for crunchy.
I originally saw this recipe on the Create Bake Make blog by Lauren. This is such a fantastic recipe and one that will be made regularly here, not just around Anzac day. Thanks Lauren!
110 gm rolled oats
150 gm plain flour
130 gm light brown sugar
70 gm desiccated coconut
125 gm butter
2 tablespoons golden syrup
1/2 teaspoon bicarb soda
In a mixing bowl place your coconut, oats and flour.
In a saucepan place your butter, sugar and golden syrup. Heat until the butter is melted over a medium heat, stir until sugar is dissolved and butter is fully incorporated.
Remove your pan from the heat and stir in the bicarb, stir in, you will find that it froths up and doubles in size quickly.
Pour the butter mix over the dry ingredients and mix together.
Make sure all the dry ingredients are incorporated.
Press into a lined baking tray. Bake in a 180 C pre heated oven. To achieve a nice chewy slice bake for 20 minutes, for a crisp and crunchy slice bake for 25 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool in tray, it is easier to cut while still slightly warm.
Watch it disappear!
